My name is Samantha Hoston, everyone calls me "Sam." I am a level 10 Gymnast at Byers Roseville Gymnastics Center. I started gymnastics when I was 8 years old and my life was forever changed. The excitement and passion that I felt propelled me to become the athlete that I am today. Practicing 22 hours a week with girls that are now "my sisters" has taught me many life skills. I have learned compassion, determination, motivation and how to dig deep to find success within my self. I understand that there are no limits as I continue to master new skills.
Currently attending Sutter Union High School in Sutter California.
As I look toward the future , I dream of becoming part of a collegiate team that shares my passion. I am excited to support, encourage and grow with a team to become NCAA Champions. I know I have the skills and ambition it takes to find success and I dream of being on a college team one day that dreams big like I do.
